I was wondering if anyone here knows which foods, when they are cooked,
will have food particles in the air that would cause a problem to
someone allergic to them? I have mulitple severe food allergies and my
husband and I don't cook anything in the house that I am allergic to
out of fear I may react to them. But I read that some foods don't
cause a problem when they are cooked. I'm just not sure which foods
are likely to cause a problem and which ones aren't. I appreciate any
help. Thanks.

Good question!

When our daughter was diagnosed we were advised about potential milk reactions from boiling milk in large quantities such as visiting a restaurant when they are making a large pot of custard, cream soup etc. She has had a raction after visiting a bakery which uses dried egg powder (it becaomes airborne).

Here is an article which might help:

The ones that I would be careful of are these:
- egg
- dairy (e.g. steamed milk)
- shellfish
- fish

Those are the foods that I have heard allergists say could cause problems when the vapour is produced from cooking and the allergic person inhales it.
